Student Spotlight: Marc Rosen

By James P. Wagner
May 19, 2010

The majority of students in most colleges, including those at Dowling, are usually aware of certain things they don’t like about the world we live in. It is a common trait in this day and age for people to complain about what they perceive to be wrong. Few of these people, however, actually attempt to do something to make the changes they want to see in the world. One of those few people, a person who actually makes the effort needed for the change he wants, is a Dowling senior: Marc Rosen.

Hot Tub Time Machine

Rude, crude, annoying, and at times hilarious, Hot Tub Time Machine certainly isn’t at the level of time travel films such as Back to the Future, but it can hold its own.

And the Campus Residents?

By James Browning
May 13, 2010

Dowling College is undeniably what many would denote a “commuter school.” The majority of students enrolled in the college drive to classes each day and then drive back home. Still, it is impossible to ignore the students––and there are almost five-hundred of them––who have come to think of Dowling College as their “new home.” Unlike at many other larger universities, the community of Dowling College residents is a close-knit group given the small capacity of the residence facilities. This means that almost everyone knows everyone, which tends to add to the intimacy––and drama––of dorm life.

By Erica DeAngelo
May 6, 2010

The Spoken Word Poetry Club has come a long way! The club has helped its members advance in their poetry and have the ability to freely express themselves through the art of words. The club has had 6 successful Open Mic Nights and the opportunity to attend some as well. During the holiday season the club helped raise money for the Make a Wish foundation, by having a fortune cookie sale. The members of the club had the opportunity to get published in the Examination Anthology.

Tuesdays with Morrie

By Dana Basile
May 6, 2010

Never before have I started to read a book and felt so inspired to write about it only a few pages in. Tuesdays with Morrie is the kind of book that truly changes you and the way you look at the world. Morrie Swartz is a professor at Brandeis University in Massachusetts. Mitch Albom is his student and, for a loss of a better word, his prodigy.For 4 years, the two got to know each other, and they formed a much more powerful relationship than just professor and student; they became very close friends.

An Alien Acquaintance: a.k.a. Classmates Flashbacks

By Agnieszka Ulinski
May 6, 2010

It was a cold, harsh, biting frost. The air could almost be touched. I remember seeing the vapors of my breath crystallizing like tiny stars on a clear night. And what a night it was…

Black, yet the reflection from snow was lighting the pathway between the two fields of frozen dirt. It was as if I were looking at the winter version of the painting “A landscape With Tobias” by Jacek Malczewski.

Pizza Mania

By Arianna Johnson
May 5, 2010

If you ask me, the most universally liked food is pizza. People have different opinions on where best pizza comes from: some prefer the deep dish pizza from Chicago, while others are in favor of New York’s thin crust pizza. Most people will name pizza as their favorite food. However, to me, the most appealing aspect of pizza is its versatility.

By James Browning

Alpha Chi is one of the many honor societies at Dowling College. It is a national college honor society whose main criterion for acceptance is academic achievement (evaluated according to class rank). Thus, it is one of the few honor societies open to all academic disciplines. Undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students are admitted into the society if they comprise the top ten percent of their class.

Improvisation

By Justin Murphy
May 1, 2010

Improvisation class…well, it’s certainly different from other classes, I’ll say that. The basis of improvisation is to learn how to improvise in certain situations and this class helps with that a lot.
